Matthew lost a tooth tonight! One of the uppers. He still has quite a few that need to come out. This was taken the next morning after he woke up and saw the tooth fairy came!

Wednesday I went to Matthew's PE class in the afternoon. He has PE the last hour of the day and they were running the mile today. I went to help them pace - doing a 12 minute mile. It was fun and he was happy to see me! But I forgot to take a selfie with him! :( Matthew did 3 laps (we think), so 3/4 of a mile.
Wednesday means ST day, so Mr. Colten came over. They played a Memory game and then did some contrast and comparisions with sport cards...

Monday, Miss Lynnette and Miss Maggie came for OT with Matthew. For this Halloween - they made Cake Pops!
Reading ingredients and measuring everything out...
Mixing and then filling the cups...
Popping them back out of the cake pop maker...
And then frosting them...
They turned out cute and tasted yummy!!!!

On Saturday, Michael, Matthew and I went to their Special Olympics City Golf Meet. We had to walk the 9 holes, so I ended up caddying. Luckily, it was a fairly nice day!
They ended up with a 55 for the 9 holes. They take turns hitting the ball and switch the lead person each hole. We played with 2 other Unified teams. They ended up taking home the silver medal! Michael's first medal!
I went and helped out at the Band Competition after that. Ryan's Marching Band took 2nd place in their division!

Friday night was Senior Night at the Football game. At Halftime, we all escorted Ryan (and the other Seniors from Band, each with their own families) onto the field to recognize the Seniors for their hard work and dedication. The 1st of many to come events for his senior year! :)
There was a photographer there that took a photo of all of us, so I'll post it when I get it. Here's one I took of him in his uniform.

Today, Ryan picked Matthew up from school. Matthew's DDD Co-ordinator came by for his 90 day review after that. She goes over what we set on his annual meeting and just "checks up" on everything in general to make sure nothing big needs to be changed.
Matthew played Minecraft while she was here and after she left. It amazes us sometimes the things he makes in this app. He will look up and watch videos on YouTube on how to make things and the next thing you know - he has it made!
We used to play Uno everynight before bed, but have gotten away from it with a new bidtime routine. Maybe we need to start it back up again! :)

Tuesday, I went to pick up Matthew from school. The room aide came out of the building without him. I guess it was the 1st day for Matthew to go to his FACS and PE classes totally on his own! But of course, he wasn't over where we pick him up yet and we had to go look for him in the locker roon - LOL! So now we work on changing clothes and getting out! :)
Then I took him to meet Michael at the golf course, where they played 9 holes of golf. Storms where threatening in the area, but nothing ever materialized, so they played all the way through...

Monday we all went back to school. Fall break was over! Grammie went back home yesterday and we watched Nascar and Football most of the day...
After school on Monday, Miss Lynnette, the OT, came with Miss Maggie, her student OT, and brought all sorts of Halloween fun with her!
First there was this sticky, wet fun... find the objects hidden within.
Then they made a cute Halloween foam craft...
Matthew had to pick up and sort pom poms...
Then he did some very simple math to color by the numbers on the iPad...
